    did you draw a diagram? try drawing one and posting it, so the answer will become clear to you.

    for question (a):

    obviously (you'll see this from the diagram) ABC forms a triangle. all the angles of a triangle add up to 180 degrees. you are given two angles in the triangle. how would you find the third?

    for question (b):

    again, a diagram is important here. once you have a diagram, all you need to find the required angles is the Alternate Segment Theorem. see what it says here (it's a little more than half way down the page)

    you're new, so we can let it slide for the record though, double posting doesn't get your question answered any faster

    I knew A, jus B i was coufused about.

    Thanks a lot, once again.
    do you understand how to do it now? what's your solution?
